Re: RHINO RECORDS, SUNDAZED PLATTERS darkness shrugs
David Hilliard was like one of the Last Poets, but the kids shouting peace peace peace were scared of revolution.
So Hilliard went over the top on November 15, 1969 at the Golden Gate Park Moratorium... The kids boo'd him when he started ranting that rock music wasn't worth fighting for.
He got arrested a week later (all charges were dropped but he was on the list for good afterwards) for the final few words in his speech, which I won't repeat again, the point is... some things are best not said - free speech isn't free everywhere and forever anymore than music is.
It's a drag that the music my generation and your generation together turned the world onto, at least anyone willing to listen, out of love and enthusiasm for a worthy thing, only to have it sold back to us after we already bought it -
I mean, not just the Grateful Dead...
we and I - in late 1963, very early 1964, we echoed the beat of the Beatles - way beyond even Elvis Presley or anyone in popular music before then, WE made them popular, which made them the biggest act entertainment phenonomen ever...
and there've been a few, way before the 4 lads from Liverpool turned left at Greenland...
but not like that, that support their fans gave them, it spread, to all generations, we changed their world and then they changed the whole world and then...
well, you got it right... corporations are just that, corporations.
Making money is what they do. They're generally not in the charity end of things.
They study trends, sunny jim, and market them the way they see fit.
Your opinion, your posts, your famous last words are on the google search engine 20 minutes later.
All the love you give and have given to the no doubt Grateful Dead, is being studied, scrutinized and ultimately ground up into little sausages that are sold right back at ya.
I was there in the late '60s when the Beatles were calling it a day, and the Dead were the next big thing...
protesting greed and hipocracy with 250,000 other peace punks, but we didn't know brown (flush it down) from sunshine (mellow if yellow).
Just like Bill Graham said to the ladies and gentlemen at the GD Fillmore East April 1971 concert who wanted more, more, more - relax alright?
we were the same as today's remote contol phreaks who want their Cake and eat it too, vegan-style without the hydrox grease.
Isn't that special.
Alright, that's enough of cream puff!
Have a month of Sundazed - imho the heir-in-waiting to the once cool Rhino -
Sundazed' psychedelic free music player link is a-ok now...
turn it on, pause it... no registration mess.
non-unobtrusive, no pop-ups, and the little window can be buried under this window if you get the chance tune in once, just for me, that would make me smile;>)
Sundazed Tech Web of Sound even plays vintage Grateful Dead that Rhino hasn't released yet, such as the alternate backing tracks for the 1965 Scorpio sessions, and their playlist automatically updates and provides in-depth song/artist details at a click:
• Technicolor Web of Sound www.techwebsound.com
notice the streaming photo, in Bob Dylan's eye sockets, of a clean shaven Jerry Garcia!
Or,well- he could've used a hair cut, ha ha.
The Technicolor Web of Sound plays the best 60s psychedelic rock music from the classics to incredibly obscure gems. To complement the comprehensive playlist, TWOS also includes authentic, vintage 60s period radio commercials, thick air and lossless quadrophenic static.
No more mr. nasty guy!
